It is actually very difficult to describe City Museum, it is like walking into someone's artistic dream...designed for rough and tumble play or admiration, or both. I took my 5-year-old here and we spent over 5 hours...easily could have stayed all day. The rooftop is incredible and worth the extra cost. You can ride a Ferris wheel and walk on a bus that hangs out over the street 12 stories below. You can climb up into teetering airplanes and go through web-like walkways. The rope swing was a huge source of fun for my daughter. There are conveniently-located food/drink locations inside as well, serving everything from beer to penny candy to fantastic BBQ. The main floors of the museum contain caves and crawlspaces and room for exploration for hours for children and adults.
There is extensive history in the museum and the chance to see features that were put into buildings back when more care was taken with decoration and building projects. We will be back to City Museum again and again and again, and each time will be a different experience.
Recommendation for what to wear/bring: long pants/jeans, tennis shoes, pocket camera, cash (for snacks and penny candy). Travel light and avoid bringing a purse or bag if you can.
